Stadio Olimpico in Rome is the venue for Sunday’s Serie A’s fixture pitting hosts AS Roma against Fiorentina.
AS Roma have had a solid start to the season despite forfeiting the opening fixture due to the team having multiple players under quarantine. They have since hit the road in stride with two wins and two draws over their next four Serie A games, the last of which came last weekend against high flying AC Milan where they came back thrice in the game to earn a point in a thrilling 3-3 draw in Milan.
The Giallorossi have been banging in goals for fun, scoring in 9 of the last 10 matches they played. The midweek 0-0 home draw against Sofia being the odd one out. They fielded a largely second-string for the game, perhaps expecting an easy ride to rest some of their star players and also due to the injuries they have faced.
Paulo Fonseca is expected to go back to his starters for with one.
Like their opponents, Fiorentina have also been involved in some of the thrilling games to open the season. After winning their season opener against Torino, they took Inter to task in Milan in their second game and led 3-2 until the 87th minute, when Inter turned the game on its head with a couple of late goals to steal it 4-3.
They won their last Serie A game, beating Udinese 3-2 at home to move into the top half the table, in 10th place, just a point behind Roma who are in 9th place on the log.
They do not have as much injury issues as their hosts and they are likely to approach with a similar attacking mentality as they did in the Inter Milan trip and we could in for a treat.
Both of these teams are known for their all-out attacking styles. They have both been involved in more than one eye-catching high scoring games. With Roma nursing a few injuries, we can expect Fiorentina to have a go at them here. They’ve actually won 7 of their last 10 games in all competitions and scored in all 10 of those games. Roma play well at home and have not tasted defeat in any of their last 8 home games. We expect an attacking fest in this game. Both teams have scored in the last 5 straight head-head matchups and we fancy the same to land here @ 1.61 with Betwinner as our first betting tip for this clash.
Roma opted to rest some of their key players against Sofia in midweek with an eye on this game and we should see a return to the starting lineup for their leading striker Edin Dzeko. Like fine wine, he has continued shining for them. He scored a brace against Benevento in his last home game and also one of the three goals against Milan last weekend. We are backing him to score anytime @ 1.91 with Betwinner as our final betting tip for the game.
